Chain Cactus (Rhipsalis Paradoxa)


This product is sold out

This amazing member of the Jungle Cacti tribe is only found in the tropical rainforests of Brazil where it is threatened by habitat loss! It can be easily identified by its alternating, triangular stem sections that somewhat resemble the links of a chain, hence it's common name, Chain Cactus. Like pretty much all Jungle Cacti this beauty is super easy to care for!


Water when the top 2-3cm of soil in the pot dries out during the Spring and Summer months. Water much less during Autumn and Winter. This Cacti is happy to remain on the drier side so if in doubt let it dry out!


As it has adapted to life in under the rainforest canopy it likes bright indirect light and humidity but will also handle a bit of shade. Great for kitchens or bathrooms that get a bit of natural light.

Managing growth

Your plant's beautiful chain-like stems will be between 30 to 60cm long when you receive it and it will continue to fill out. They look amazing in any handmade ceramic pot, especially when paired with a Philodendron with a similiar trailing habit such as P. cordatum or P. micans!

Greeting your Rhipsalis paradoxa

These plants are shipped in a 1.5L nursery pot that is wrapped in a calico bag to keep the soil in during transport. They will fit any pot from our Classic Pot Range.
